A Wreath of Snow by Liz Curtis Higgs

A great read.  I was able to finish this book in about an hour and was read to see what would happen.  Meg is not on the greatest terms with her family and she leaves to go back to her house on Christmas Eve, but the train gets stuck in snow and she has to go back home.  She is accompanied home by someone that she met long ago and wonders how her family will treat him.  Good read about forgiveness and bitterness.
